sunscreen

My skin is prone to acne, but I really want to put on sunscreen. I know there are sunscreens that supposedly don't clog pores and is oilfree, but I just don't know. I don't want to take the risk of applying soemthing that will make me breakout.

What sunscreen do you use and does it make you breakout?

Me too. Even the nurse at the derm's office said that sunscreens sometimes clog pores and cause breakouts, so look for a moisturizer without one. So I guess everyone on RAM, Taz, or BP should just avoid lots of sun!!

Re: sunscreen

I'm not using any medicine that makes me sensitive to the sun but I do have fair skin so I guess that is enough. I am using Aveeno spf 15 with natural soy complex and light diffusers and it makes my skin look beautiful and I have had no breakouts from using so far (3 weeks). I am on 50 mg of spiro, Yasmin bcp, and a 20% BP gel at night in case you are interested. (I think the spiro is doing wonders)

My nurse at the derma office said the same exact thing! She said that I shouldn't use sunscreen because it'll clog my pores. The only thing that I should do is avoid sunlight.

Re: sunscreen

Yeah I usually don't like the feeling of sunscreens. They feel greasy on my face and I don't have oily skin. BUT I really don't want wrinkles when I'm older so that's my motivation I guess!!! Tons of girls at my school go tanning probably everyday. If I look at pictures of me with them, they look orange and I look very pale, neither is too attractive according to society, but I know what I'll look like in 30 years compared to them!!!!! wish there was an amazing one out there that felt more like a good moisturizer

Re: sunscreen

I have extremely oily and acne prone skin. My face is clear now and I do use sunscreen. I use neutrogena ultra dry sheer sunblock spf 45 (i think that is the name). It does not make my face oiler nor does it cause me to break out. I wear it everytime I go out during "sun hours".

I have tried Paulas Choice non-greasy sunscreen. This made my face look sooo greasy and nasty. I do not recommend it at all.

Re: sunscreen

I'm currently using Total Control all-day mattifying moisturizer, and it works pretty good. It's a good moisturizer as well as a good sunscreen (SPF 15). I've been using it for almost a year now and it gets the job done without any breakouts. In fact, it helps my skin, because I've noticed a decrease in clog pores, thus making my skin feel smother. Overall, I think it works well, it doesn't leave your skin feeling oily or looking shiny, but it provides you with enough sun protection and moisture. You should be able to find it at any pharmacy/drugstore.
